Hi folks!

I see a lot of you have already gotten the latest version of The White House, but here's a little information on this update for those just joining us.

The new build resolves issues with the game displaying beyond the bounds of the screen.

You should see an update notification for this game within your Game Manager.

If you don't see the update alert within your Game Manager, just uninstall the current build then reinstall. You can find instructions on how to uninstall your game by clicking here.

If you're still experiencing other technical difficulties with this game not related to this particular display issue, you may want to ensure that you have the latest updates needed to run this game properly. You can read more about how to do this by clicking here. If you are still having trouble after running the updates recommended there, please click on the "contact us" link on the left side of that article to get in touch with Customer Support.

Happy gaming!

I downloaded the new build, and my display issue was fixed! The game didn't lock up on me either, and I played through the whole demo. Thanks BF, and Spark Plug Games!

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't have any issues because after reading all the tech trouble posts decided to not even DL the demo til fixed. So I wouldn't have known about the rebuild without demo on GMgr yet. Didn't expect it to be available this soon so yippee, will demo tonight. Looked like a game I'll like very much and otherwise been a dull week for me.Need more games on my card, just 4 so far.

I played the demo after the rebuild, and I like the game, but it froze up on me twice during the one hour demo. I hope that can be resolved.

Before the update, I played up to the Lincoln Bedroom
After, I can't get past the first screen
The text box is up telling me to open the inventory
I can't open the inventory, can't open menu to get out
I restarted my computer to get out.
It is, however, a great game.

Played through to the end. Quite a clever little game. Voices were very good and screenplay is excellent. Music was very nice, not intrusive when needing to concentrate. More like this please?

Downloaded today (1/17) and can't get more than 10 minutes into it before it freezes up.

Glad I'm not the only one having tech issues. I've been trying to play the demo and so far the Windows task manager has been my best friend.

1) Program completely freezes: kill program 3 times
2) Switched windows to read an email: screen slides 1/4th of the way off the right of the monitor - and then freezes. kill program 4 times. (That might not have been an issue if I could have found a 'pause' button.)

This looks like it might be a good game.

I just played the demo & had no problems. I love it. Don't know if it is a long game or replayable value will wait & see. might buy with my credit.

Thought I'd try this "recommended" game, but now see in the forum that it was doomed from the start. What might have been a nice, relaxing HOG quickly became an exercise in frustration with the technical glitches. (And this after updating my Direct X prior to downloading the game.) Too bad. I like the idea of a White House HOG. Funny there haven't been others out there yet.

By the way, the game froze at least twice while I was still at the professor's house (the beginning.) So not worth restarting every couple of minutes!

Hi Everyone!

If this game is giving you trouble with freezing or other issues it might be worth trying the steps at this help article here as I've found they've helped other players in the past:

Game Crashing, Freezing, or Blank Screen

However if you're still having trouble after that don't hesitate to get in touch with Tech Support (if you click the blue text it will take you to more information on how to do that) and one of our reps would be happy to help you out with your purchase.

Hope that helps!
